Everywhere i post or anybody i talk to are always talkin bout talent and how am i supposed to distinguish if i’m talented or not?my coach says i am but he doesn’t know any better.
Train hard/smart for 10 plus years, come tell us your time at the end of those 10 years, and we’ll tell you whether or not you’re talented.
Seriously though, it’s hard to determine talent, because sometimes talent doesn’t become apparent until you reach a certain training age. Having said that, if you run a 6.5 55m (which is what I think you claimed) at the age of 16, then yes, you are ‘talented’.
